A charming one bedroom period garden maisonette of generous proportions that boasts it’s own private entrance, a private garden, a share of freehold and close proximity to transport links too.
Located a literal moment from Avenue Road tram stop, which is only two stops away from Beckenham Junction station, (opening up multiple transport links including London Victoria & London Bridge) giving easy access to Beckenham High St with it’s array of classy cafes, bars, pubs & celebrated restaurants! Kent House & Clock House stations are very close by, as is Birkbeck, although with access to the tram stop so close it’s likely to become your go-to transport link!
Entering the flat through it’s own front door you are greeted by stripped wooden floors and a warm interior. The reception room is at the front of the building and benefits from a gloriously bright southern aspect with two large windows exploiting this, there is also a period fireplace, and the stripped wooden floors continue through into the reception.
Moving into the middle of this charming home is the bedroom which has high ceilings, a period fireplace, the same stripped wooden floors and a view down to the garden. The kitchen is spacious, with room for a proper table, it has generous storage and ample worktop space, although there is opportunity to make more of the space, but it does currently work well, notably there are two lovely large windows making the space feel very bright and airy.
The bathroom features a shower over a full-size bath and whilst perfectly functional does give further opportunity for the new owner to improve it and add value whilst designing it in their own taste. The private garden is directly accessed via the flat, just off the kitchen and gets the western sun in the afternoon & evening but still gets the southern sun in the early part of the day too. Being mainly patio it is incredibly easy to maintain.
Location wise this home is nearby multiple transport links, with Avenue Road tram stop being the nearest which is a mere 0.1mi away, this is only two stops from Beckenham Junction where there are a multitude of options including a fast link to Victoria and also London Bridge. Kent House & Clock House stations are also approx. half a mile away.
For those who might put down roots in the local area it’s worth noting that Balgowan Primary School is nearby and accessible as is Stuart Fleming (rated Outstanding) and Churchfields is moments away too.
Nearby at Elmers End there is a large Tesco supermarket, and more locally just passed Birkbeck station there is a post office, a co-op, a couple of cafes catering to all tastes, a barbers, gym and other amenities too. Beckenham High St is easy to access and offers a wide selection of shops and offers a village feel, there is a cinema, dentists, Sainsburys and an array of restaurants from chains such as Zizzi to independents which are locally celebrated, there really is something for everyone on Beckenham High Street, Penge High Street, Crystal Palace and Sydenham are all within easy reach too.
In summary this is a great flat with all the major boxes ticked, such as being a share of freehold, having a private entrance & a private garden and being so close to some brilliantly connected transport links, and whilst perfectly liveable it offers an opportunity to add value too. Notably a few weeks ago we sold an incredibly similar neighbouring flat a few doors away which is the same size and almost the same layout which sold well in excess of it’s £325,000 asking price, so this is a great buy for a first time buyer or even a rental investor.
